Al-Qaida leader Osama Bin-Laden tried to obtain nuclear weapons, according to his former bodyguard, Nasser al-Bahri.

“He dreamed of getting nuclear weapons, and I’m sure that had he got hold of them, he would not have hesitated to use them,” al-Bahri told Al-Quds al-Arabi on Wednesday morning.

Al-Bahri, who is currently residing in Yemen, revealed to the London-based paper that he always carried bullets in order to kill Bin-Laden should the al-Qaida leader be arrested.
